Antique power on display at 13th annual event Sept. 27-29

By ThisWeek Community News  • 

Pataskala’s 13th annual Antique Power Show featuring antique tractors and farm implements will be held Sept. 27-29 at Thomas J. Evans Foundation Park, 10255 McIntosh Road.

“Agriculture is still the top business in Licking County,” said show organizer and City Councilman Mike Compton.

He said the show celebrates the area’s rural roots and its farming history.

“People come from statewide,” he said.

Equipment comes from local clubs, such as the Land of Legends Tractor Club, and local farmers bring in equipment to display.

“Equipment comes in from all over but we have more from locals,” Compton said.

He said many local farmers might have kept equipment that no longer is used on the farm and they bring it to display at the show.

Equipment also is used in competitive pulls. New this year to the show is a series of quad pulls with all-terrain vehicles.

Compton said the event caters to families, with live entertainment, a farmers market, a car show, archery exhibitions, food and displays by local organizations such as the West Licking Joint Fire District and West Licking Historical Society.

The Antique Power Show opens at 8 a.m. Friday, Sept. 27, with registration, and closes at 8 p.m. The event will be open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29.

Primitive camping is available on site.

Compton said the event is supported by donations, raffles and funding from the Summit Station Lions Club.
